Hey, you know what was great? Waking up at 7 AM as a kid on Saturdays to catch all those awesome cartoons on TV like Pokemon, X-Men, Batman, The Flintstones, Transformers and all that good stuff.
You know what's also great? Metal.
You know what would be the greatest? If there was some way you could combine those two...
Actually, it already happened, and it's called Powerglove, a GWAR-ish band from Boston who plays speed/power metal covers of saturday morning cartoon themes as well as video game themes. So if you've always wanted to hear a metal version of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers theme song, you're in luck. Saturday Morning Apocalypse is a glorious celebration of the good old days, when you were a kid and the biggest disaster that could happen in your life was spilling cereal on the carpet. Their rendition of the Pokemon song is particularly exquisite, with Tony Kakko of Sonata Arctica fame handling vocal duties, delivering the well-known lyrics:
I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST
LIKE NO ONE EVER WAAAAAAAAAS
TO CATCH THEM IS MY REAL TEST
TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAAAAAAAAUSE!
Nostalgia hit hard, man.
